Child Death Review

The Hawaii Child Death Review System was established in 1997 by the  Legislature through Hawaii Revised Statute §321-345.  The Child Death Review teams conduct comprehensive and multidisciplinary reviews of child deaths 0-17 years  to understand risk factors of child deaths.  The reviews focus on prevention and has lead  to recommendations to prevent future deaths to keep children safe and healthy.
